    Anyone leaving the cos is a good thing because it cuts off the flow of money from yet another person. Otherwise, what nozeno said.
  6. He seems really excited to be leaving prison and entering a Halfway House, good for him. Hopefully it won't take him long to lose the electronic monitoring anklet altogether and integrate back into society as a free man.

    another one joins Marty's gang

    one thing I noticed on these new people leaving and going over to the other side is that their declarations they make afterwards look and sound quite similar...wonder why?

    Do they maybe get help writing these thingies?

    "I will not support any regime that has ANYTHING to do with David Miscavage as he is in my opinion a CRIMINAL for taking my Church and it’s Tech away from everyone. He has altered and abused many many many parishioners and org staff and SO staff."

    Hey - altering people. That's what I call Standerd Tek.
  12. Marty needs to vary his commercials a little, they are getting kind of stale, maybe an animated gif of the energizer bunny walking through these declarations would liven them up a bit.

    Well, at least he is out of the "church".

    And, you believe this because *he* told you that? Or, that the *Church* told you that? I'd say both have equivalent levels of credibility and even interest in 'The Truth', except in how to evade it.

    He's halfway out, the way I see it. He got the cajones to speak out and leave the organization. And that's a good thing. :thumbsup:

    Ouch. I meant the DM church.

    I put it at 25%. He's left the organized church and learned to speak out against authority, which is discouraged under LRH tech. But he's still attributing his "wins" - the ups in life we all experience - to Scientology. His mind still belongs to LRH.

    It's one small step for the man, although I still can't decide if the move to Marty's camp is a step in the right direction.

  19. He hopped over the fence of the prison and made an escape but he's still wearing the shackles and prison uniform as a security blanket.

    It's at least a step in a less bad direction. I've heard of no stories of Marty committing the same crimes as the CofS in the present.
